Differentiation of Curriculum Practices and Instruction in Elementary Schools


by Henry Harap 1936

Only a few of the fundamental books in curriculum-making discuss the subject of individual differences extensively. Franklin Bobbitt pointed out that recognition of individual differences was fundamental in curriculum-making. The limited abilities of the backward have to be determined and a low standard of achievement in these limited abilities has to be required. The activities of the several ability groups must differ and they must be set forth in separate curricula. Contrary to the usual practice, Bobbitt suggested that we must begin with the curriculum for the most advanced group; for the average group we must limit and modify the experiences of the gifted group; and for the subaverage group, the curriculum of the average group must be reduced and modified.
